One year ago, we gathered in front of the Barn at Sticks and Stones and hiked up the hill into the woods¬†together¬†for our first Ecstatic Forest Dance.¬† Moving the dance outside was one of the greatest blessings that arose out of the Covid quarantine period, and I’m grateful that we¬†discovered our shared love for dancing with nature.¬† The community that has come together around this dance has been life enhancing for so many of us.¬† Some of us have moved in together, some have started our own outdoor dances, and some of us have fallen in love.¬† Please join us to celebrate the incredible community that we have co-created of dancers, artists, drummers, and nature-lovers.


Jackie Rainbow is curating the playlist. Musical Instruments + Drumming will be provided by Andrew Prue + closing circle will end with a sound meditation. Sarah Sage will be live-painting and facilitating a community canvas for all to express themselves with color and shape.  We will have a fire and festival lights :).  Feel free to dress up, bring flow toys or extra decorations!

As always, use consent when approaching others for hugs/dancing/physical contact. ¬†A porta-pottie is available behind the barn before you walk up.DIRECTIONS: Park in the lot by the barn + walk up the gravel road that continuously curves over to the right.
